But that was enough to set off some talk about Comey eyeing the commander-in-chief post.

Former FBI Director James Comey has always been rumored to have a secret Twitter account, and this weekend he confirmed it by posting a photo of himself right here in Iowa. The photos have been taken in rural Iowa with a cornfield in the background.

Comey is at work on a book on ethics and leadership due out in the spring. One of the major themes from his book is the experience he had while working for the government.

Comey was sacked by President Donald Trump in May.

Over the a year ago, if you were to ask any political pundit who they'd like to see on Twitter the most, that person likely would have been former FBI Directly James Comey. The only time he made an appearance to the public was the moment he was appearing before the congressional committee to talk about his reign as the Federal Bureau of Investigation director and what transpired between him and the president. Most importantly, the White House insists he was sacked for handling Russian interference with the USA elections poorly.

The 27-year-old from Stirling was arrested for alleged public indecency and drinking alcohol at the Rock Bottom Bar on July 15. Britain's Foreign Office has put out notices warning travelers to be mindful of local rules while in Dubai.

The Trump administration said he was "terminated and removed from office" over his handling over the investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server. The firing ultimately led to the appointment of a special counsel, which has dogged the Trump presidency for months.

With a new Twitter pseudonym - Reinhold Niebuhr - Comey revealed he was in Iowa with his wife Patrice, an Iowa native whose father was celebrating his 90th birthday. For starters, this is an ancient American theologian. Comey's association with Niebuhr centers around his senior thesis on the figure during his time at the College of William and Mary. For instance, the former director had a picture on Sunday that showed bird formation in a blue sky.

Speculation that Comey was on Twitter has been building since March. Back then, he used a Twitter handle @projecttextile7.

Comey has since changed his handled to '@FormerBu'.

Benjamin Wittes later posted on his Twitter account: "Ok, in light of this latest tweet, I will confirm that @FormerBu is, in fact, James Comey himself".
